The Tay 25 Walks from Source to Sea

The Tay 25 Walks from Source to Sea

by: K R Fergus
As well as being Scotland's longest river, the Tay also carries the largest volume of water of any river in the UK more than the Thames and Severn combined when it reaches the Firth of Tay. From its source high up the slopes of Ben Lui near Tyndrum, the Tay makes its way through Stirlingshire and Perthshire to meet the North Sea near Dundee. As one of the best salmon rivers in Europe the Tay lures anglers from around the world and many more come to explore the nearby hills and the glens it passes through.

There is no better way to discover the wildlife, architecture and history of this area of Scotland than to walk. Whatever your ability walking at high or low level, following tough terrain or level paths the 25 routes in this guide offer something for everyone.

Each walk entry begins with distance, time, terrain, start/finish point with grid reference, public transport details and OS map references together with an outline of the walk area. This is followed by route finding instructions and a simple colour overview sketch map. Colour photographs are also included throughout, giving the book an attractive page layout and the pocket size is ideal on the trail. An introduction provides details of the River Tay and practical considerations for walking in the area.
